YÊN BÁI — The Yên Bái police have launched criminal proceedings against a man for deliberately assaulting doctors from the Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital, reported Người Lao Động (The Labourer) newspaper.
The provincial police had announced a warrant for Lê Hồng Nam, 33, from Cốc Lếu District in Lào Cai City, Lào Cai Province, who is believed to have led the assault.
The assault occurred in the hospital in Yên Bái City on February 20. The victims are Phạm Hải Ninh, an anesthesiologist, and Hoàng Đức Trung, a surgical assistant.
According to Việt Nam News’s previous report, Nam took his wife to the hospital on that day for a Caesarean section.
After conducting a medical examination, the pregnant woman was transferred to the operating room.
While the operation was being performed, Nam climbed on to the hospital’s balcony to record a video. When a midwife asked him to stop, Nam harassed her and threatened to beat anyone he met after the operation.
Doctors Ninh and Trung were attacked by Nam and 15 others when they stepped out of the operating room.
The attacker escaped following the incident.
On investigation, the provincial police identified Nam as the main attacker and launched a nationwide search for him. — VNS
